Thanks to Mboatbum, I am now educated on the fact that today is indeed, "National Drink Wine" day!
(Now that's the kind of alert I do love to receive). True be that!
And while I'm grateful beyond beyond therefore, for his wonderful reminder, and have been in full compliance for a good 33 or my 43 years, (first tiny sample of wine for me being Bordeaux, and at age 10, I was in love with it), I want to hear what everyone loves about drinking wine, the most!????????????????
For me, it is a "connector!"
(You raise a glass, you salute to life, to food, to love, to sipping! You toast somebody else, you share "somebody's family in a glass" and you drink in something lovely and made with such passion, as you do celebrate yours)!
What part of wine do you love best?
And what do you love it paired with that you do smoke?
(My steak tartare with smoked mango - in yesterday's beef section - is my favorite pairing/menu so far).
But what about you?
Kindly share your favorite wine, or wine & smoked food sentiments!!!
After all, "It IS a holiday" right?
Cheers!!!!!!! - Leah
